JAPAN AIR SYSTEMS SELECTS WICAT TO PROVIDE WICAT/SAS CBT FOR DC-10 AIRCRAFT

 OREM, Utah, Sept. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Wicat Systems Inc. announced today that it has received an order from Japan Air Systems (JAS) to deliver Wicat/Scandinavian Airlines System (SAS) DC-10 computer-based training (CBT) courseware along with a complete computer hardware system.
 The DC-10 courseware was originally developed as a joint project between Wicat and SAS. The courseware incorporates interactive multimedia presentations including computer graphics, digitized audio and interactive video. The ground breaking CBT program has helped reduce SAS's training costs and training time for crew, making CBT a cornerstone of ground school training for all aircraft operated by SAS.
 JAS plans to use the DC-10 CBT as the initial step in a fleet-wide CBT implementation. JAS's subsidiary, Japan Air Commuter (JAC), introduced Wicat/SAS CBT for their SAAB 340B aircraft last year.
 John White, Wicat's sales manager for the Asia/Pacific Region, said, "Wicat was very pleased to solve a major training problem for JAS with our DC-10 courseware. As training personnel transitioned to new aircraft, specifically MD-90, JAS required an alternative for their DC-10 ground school training. Wicat and JAS are now working together to utilize the DC-10 courseware and customize it to JAS requirements, including Japanese audio."
 Wicat Systems Inc., a Jostens Learning Co., and a subsidiary of Jostens Inc. (NYSE: JOS), is a world leader in technology-based training products and services. Jostens stock is traded on the NYSE under the symbol JOS.
